Take that sticker off the hood unless they are paying you. Yuk. Oh, paint those tubes on the fenders black. It would look good I promise.

The sticker is on the hood to distract people from the TC drop

Painting the tubes could be an option. On a different note I picked up a pair of Currie UCA's. It's the first step in slowly replacing the RC lift piece by piece, although technically replacing stock UCA's is not replacing the RC lift.

If I can do it anybody can, trust me on this. Although I gotta say that even though what I was painting over was pretty crappy, it still took a lil courage to start sanding on it. And throughout the process I had several "what the hell am I doing" moments. But all's well that ends well.

That will be my approach on painting mine... I've already started to wonder what I'm doing, I just removed the entire front clip, and got the bug in my head that since I've already got to weld, might as well move the motor mounts and drop in a 4.0 ax15 combo.

So I'm thinking about doing a little surgery on the Smitty stinger. The more I stare at it the stinger just looks overbearing on the front end. I'd really like to upgrade to the Rokmen Mercenary bumper but I've got other more pressing needs first. I actually like the shape of the base of the Smitty bumper so I was thinking I would just cut the stinger off and weld on a different hoop. I've actually had this other one lying around for about a year from when I was going to build my own bumper from scratch. I dragged it out the other day and knocked the dust off of it and when I got to looking at it I realized the hoop actually somewhat resembles that of the Rokmen bumper. I zip-tied it to the stinger so you can see the size difference (sorry for the crappy inside pic but it's cold and windy outside and I'm not backing out of the garage just to take a pic ). It's already got light tabs on it but I think I'll cut them off and move em to the top of the hoop if I do this. Thoughts anybody?

Okay man, nice work with your paint job! I am very impressed. After painting my rockers with spray paint I feel more confident with my painting skills and would try painting a car! I tried buffing with a rubbing compound and then a polishing paste and it really made everything look even with a mirror finish. Although yours might not even need it! Great work.

I kind of like the big *** stinger that's on there already, but it's your Jeep, so it's your decision. I think it would look good either way.

I'm looking for something a little more compact that I can mount lights to. I want to move the PIAAs off of the windshield brackets.

Yep, I love me some Currie! Only three more sets of CA's to go. I haven't decided between Jb and an AA SYE myself. Heard good things about both.
